Thanks to Adams Family for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Before it was developed as a commercial product, Eucalyptus wool wash was made at home to the following recipe. This might not be the same as Eucalan, as I haven't come across it here, but it *is* no-rinse.

• 1 cup methylated spirits (Ed note - also known as denatured alcohol - ethyl alcohol denatured with a small amount of methyl alcohol)
• 4 cups pure soap flakes
• 1 small bottle eucalyptus oil.

Mix well together, it's rather thick and gluggy. Use one tablespoon of mixture to a bowl of water.
